Interaction Design for Data Visualizations

Interaction Design for Data Visualizations | visual data |
Interactive data visualizations are an exciting way to engage and inform large audiences. They enable users to focus on interesting parts and details, to customize the content and even the graphical form, and to explore large amounts of data. At their best, they facilitate a playful experience that is way more engaging than static infographics or videos.

Several ideas and concepts of interaction design for data visualizations are presented in this post, using 11 examples from the web. The overall concepts featured include:

  • The Basics: Highlighting and Details on Demand
  • Making More Data Accessible: User-driven Content Selection
  • Showing Data in Different Ways: Multiple Coordinated Visualizations
  • Showing Data in Different Ways: User-driven Visual Mapping Changes
  • Integrating Users’ Viewpoints and Opinions

Great article, I really like the idea of interactive information with details on demand. As an interaction designer I always try to balance content management and usability. Here are some interesting examples that made me consider a complete information surface vs a deep level on demand architecture.
